Learn to paint with natural dyes on silk with natural dyer and textile artist Elizabeth McTear of Honest Alchemy.

In this 2 hour workshop, students will initially experiment with pigments on scrap fabric, learning how to manipulate color and play with making different marks to build their personal visual language before making their final scarf. Instructions and recipes of the dyes will be provided for home use. 

Natural dyestuffs are sourced from reputable natural dye companies: Botanical Colors, Maiwa Supply and Aurora Silks. 

This workshop will take place on April 2, 2016 at Meadowsweet.
